Researchers fracture heart valves with small high-pressure balloons in the laboratory. The aim is to calculate the exact minimum pressure for a defective heart valve to fracture  without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Danish researchers behind new treatment for heart-valve patients

Now patients can have their worn-out artificial heart valve replaced without major surgery. Together with physicians at Aarhus University Hospital, engineers from Aarhus University have developed and characterised a gentle method to fracture old implants and make room for new ones.

Centuries-old art form generates completely new materials

Origami. For many people, the word means not much more than skilfully folding paper to resemble swans, frogs or other animals. But origami is much more. There are examples of origmai throughout the modern world, but it's likely that you won't notice all the things that are in fact inspired by this 17th century Japanese art form.

Engineering alumnus nominated for this year’s European Inventor Award

As a child, he has spent hundreds of hours on the playroom floor, playing with small plastic bricks. As an adult, he landed a dream job with the LEGO Group. His job was to develop programmable toys. Now he has been nominated for the European Invention Award - one of the world's most important inventor awards. This is the story about the electronic…
